Recently, emerging new infections such as SARS or
bird flu have placed significant stress on
epidemiologists, leading to high intent to change
career. Based on possible staff shortages,
retention strategies for epidemiologists have gained
importance.From the resource-based view, this
book examines how human resource capital (HRC) and
motivation systems (MS) influence the relationship
between stress and intent to say.
The book concluded that occupational/psychological
stress, HRC, and MS had an impact on
epidemiologists’ intent to stay. HRC and MS
function well as moderators on the relationship
between stress and intent to stay. To
epidemiologists in different institutions, HRC and
MS may have different moderating effects.
The SARS epidemic has raised worldwide attention.
Managers should enhance HRC and MS to attenuate
epidemiologists’stress, which may, in turn,
strengthen their intent to stay. The book,
therefore, should help shed light on present
emerging infection environment, and should be
especially useful to professionals and managers in
epidemiology fields, or anyone who are interested in
research on epidemiology or management.
